Azure is Microsoft’s public cloud computing platform. With Azure, Microsoft is aggressively investing to build the world’s computer. Microsoft Azure is the world’s most compliant cloud, with over 70 accreditations, meeting the strictest requirements for GDRP, HIPAA, ISO and many more.
Azure is also the cloud platform with the largest global footprint. Partners can choose from 54 regions, more than any other cloud provider, and choose from a large portfolio of ‘ready for Azure’ services and solutions from the Azure marketplace. 95% of the Fortune 500 companies trust Azure for their business and Microsoft is on-boarding 120,000 new Azure customer subscriptions per month. That is why Microsoft Azure is the fastest growing cloud platform, outpacing both Google Cloud and AWS.
Spend on traditional IT spend is still growing, but investments in cloud are growing much faster. Azure enables you to capture the market for traditional IT moving from on-prem to the cloud as well as the new generation of ‘born in the cloud’ applications.
Azure also speeds up development time. Using Azure can instantly scale up IT infrastructure. It enables quickly launching PoCs, pilots and projects for customers, and scaling them back just as quickly when they are done. The economies of scale and raw purchase power of the cloud provider means total cost of ownership go down significantly, while the ‘pay-as-you-go’ OPEX model means you never pay for more than you consume.
Finally, it allows businesses running their application in a private cloud, on-premise, to ease the migration to the cloud. And even applications that remain on-premise, can benefit from Azure. Choosing a hybrid cloud model, by using Azure Stack, combines the benefit of the public cloud, while keeping key applications and data on-premise.
Azure Reservations saves cost by buying a reservation on virtual machines, Azure Cosmos DB, or SQL databases and other Azure resources.

Ideal for Azure resources you plan to use anyway continuously for a year or more.
